Brian Colleran Celebrates Nursing Assistant Excellence



November 6, 2017

Nursing Home Developer, Brian Colleran, is proudly recognizing a great nursing assistant for her commitment to resident satisfaction. Selena Merrick, state tested nursing assistant at The Woods on French Creek, a 75-bed, all private suite, rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility located in Avon, Ohio, is well known at her facility for going above and beyond for residents and families every day.

The administrator of the The Woods on French Creek brought to Brian's attention the special gem they have in Selena because of her work ethic, and the little things she does to go beyond "care related tasks" into providing a genuine family and homelike environment. One of the many ways that Selena puts smiles on the faces of her residents is by bringing a balloon and a card for every resident on their birthday regardless to if she is actually working that day. Furthermore, Selena is always the first one dressed up and entertaining residents at every event at the facility. This past year at Christmas time, Selena played Santa Claus for the residents at The Woods on French Creek

Selena Merrick grew up in Lorain, Ohio. She has one brother and he resides in Sweden. Even though he lives far away, she is still able to arrange time to see him! Her most recent trip to see her brother in Sweden happened in March. She usually spends time with her “mommy” as she says; her mom is her best friend! As a kid, her family always did vacations together. She has plans to go to Hersey Park in Pennsylvania next year for vacation.

She graduated high school from Southview and went straight into pursuing her degree. Selena started classes at Lorain County Community College and graduated from there with her certificate. After that she was state tested to become an STNA. She has worked at The Woods on French Creek for a little over a year now. Her favorite part of her job is her residents because they keep her on her toes! Her hobbies include working, traveling, shopping and eating. She played basketball in grades 3rd- 11th. Her favorite food is fried chicken and seafood.

The residents and families of The Woods on French creek are very lucky to have such an awesome aide like Selena. She cares deeply about the residents. Selena is a shining example of the type of caregivers that Brian Colleran likes to partner with to raise the bar in the field of long term care with excellence in resident satisfaction and clinical outcomes. 

Congratulations Selena! You are a great benefit to so many families and residents!
